Political Correctness Is A Myth

In the minds of many in academia. Why? Complicity or ignorance?

Well Richard, I used to believe this was simply a matter of ignorance as liberals in academic, political and entertainment circles lived in an insular world with little exposure to those of us "little people." As Pauline Kael the famous movie critic once noted following Richard Nixon's 1972 election win: "I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don't know. They're outside my ken. But sometimes when I'm in a theater I can feel them."

Those days have long since passed when ignorance was a legitimate excuse. Today it is nothing more than complicity.

They know PC exists, which makes the indictment against them more damning.
